Alfonso López III (born May 16, 1982, in Corpus Christi, Texas), is a Mexican American boxer in the Super Middleweight division and is the current WBC Continental Americas Super Middleweight Champion.[1] He is trained by Henry Harris, former title contender Roy Harris and Félix Ramírez.[2]

Amateur career[edit]

Alfonso was an all-district football player at Corpus Christi Moody and went on to play at Sam Houston State University before ever boxing in the amateurs. He was a two-time Texas Golden Gloves Champion and won a silver medal at the 2005 U.S. National Championships in the Light Heavyweight division.[3]

Professional career[edit]

In April 2010, in Corpus Christi, Texas, Alfonso won a six-round unanimous decision victory over Gabriel Holguin.[4]

On November 4, 2010 Lopez fought for the vacant WBC Continental Americas Super Middleweight Championship in Dallas, Texas. Lopez won by TKO in Round 12 against Romaro Johnson, capturing his first world title.

On May 7, 2011 López lost to former world champion Kelly Pavlik by majority decision. This bout was on Showtime's televised portion of the Pacquiao vs. Mosley undercard.[5][6]

On January 6, 2012 Lopez fought Dyah Davis (son of 1976 Olympic Gold Medalist Howard Davis Jr.) for the vacant NABF Super Middleweight title. Lopez dropped a 10-round unanimous decision to Davis.

On February 18, 2012 Lopez fought against Justin Williams. Lopez had recurring elbow injuries leading up to the fight, and Lopez injured his elbow in training for the bout but continued through the fight anyway. He dropped a unanimous decision in 6.

February 28, 2013 Lopez had surgery on his left elbow and then had another surgery on March 27 for his right elbow. Lopez took time to rest and recover from the surgeries on his elbows.

"El Tigre" made his comeback on October 18, 2014 after a 2 1/2 year lay off to heal his injury. He won by TKO in Round 1 against Sean Rawley Wilson.

Lopez returned to the ring on the undercard of Canelo vs. Kirkland, May 9, 2015 in Houston, Texas at Minute Maid Park. El Tigre earned a 2nd-round KO victory over Cuban slugger Lester Gonzalez.
